Navigating the Be.Live studio

Here's what you'll see in the studio as a guest:

  1. Camera - the orange icon indicates that your camera is connected

  2. Screen share - this feature is available if the host is on the paid plan

  3. Your camera preview

  4. Public Chat - comments from Facebook/YouTube viewers will appear here

  5. Host Chat - allows you to chat privately with the host and other guests

Start of the broadcast

If you see yourself on the big screen, that means the host already added you to the broadcasting section.

There will be a 3-second countdown before the broadcast officially goes live. If you see the 'In stream' indicator above your camera preview, that means you are live. If you do not, you will see 'Waiting to go Live' instead.

Disabling your mic

To mute your audio, click Mute on your camera preview.
